I first came across Charles and his enthusiasm through the internet, what a find!
I had never previously been involved with importing a car from the USA; I felt a little concerned I was moving into a new world! I should not have worried as 51st state took all the pain out of the process. Quickly Charles understood my needs, at no point did he over promise, all he gave was the best advice and focussed on my needs.
I purchased a Dodge Ram 1500, with a great specification, that reflected my needs precisely, the whole process went very smoothly, on the day I arrived to collect the truck everything was ready and I became the very proud owner of the Dodge.
I have no hesitation in recommending 51st State Auto’s for any purchase of a great USA machine!!
Personal and professional service to please the client.
I have dealt with 51st State Autos, Charles Partos, for a number of years and continue to do so.
I have found the service to be excellent with first class step-by-step communication from initial enquiry to final delivery
and beyond. I have found the product knowledge and information to be exceptional. Any after delivery issues I have had
Have been expertly and efficiently dealt with. I will happily continue to buy vehicles and parts through the Company
I am delighted with every aspect of the service that you provided before, during & after supplying me with my new Ford Raptor, and when the time comes to replace it then I would not hesitate to use your services again
Good luck for the future
Whilst looking at the American car market I came across 51st state autos on the Internet.
I had called a few dealers in the UK previously but did not feel as if I was in good hands.
I rang Charles and his honesty and general helpfulness was a very refreshing experience and I was not pushed in to making any decisions.
My latest purchase via Charles is a superb limited edition Dodge Charger – number 145 of 392 and I was as always very impressed with the car and service level from Charles.
Delivered to my address in 4 weeks!!!
If you want to try American cars then this is the guy to talk to!!!
A trust worthy and genuine gent!!!
When looking for an American F150 or F250 I tried many companies in a bid to nail down exactly what would suit me best and after dealing with several uninterested dealers I spoke to Charles at 51st State Autos and after a great deal of patience from his side while I hummed and hawed and asked endless questions, I eventually ended up going with an F150 RAPTOR which I absolutely love. If not for Charles then I would not have ended up with the Raptor which would have been a great shame as it is the perfect vehicle for me.
In addition to the vehicle I was also astounded by the wide array of options available through 51st state as I put down a wish list of extras that I would like to have and Charles managed to get them all for me, resulting in an absolutely unique and very special vehicle. Best vehicle purchasing experience I have ever had and if you are looking to bring in a vehicle from abroad, 51st State Autos is the place to go.
I have been dealing with Charles at 51st state Autos for around 7 years now in which time he has sourced and supplied 5 new vehicles for me.
I never bother talking to anyone else when needing a US cars because I know from experience that Charles’ prices are the keenest and his service and attention to detail is without fault.
I’m not the most straightforward of buyers, everything I buy new always need modification and no matter how challenging my vehicle is delivered complete and without fault.
I’ve bought 2 trucks from Charles both of them have been awesome , Charles is very knowledgeable and friendly and gives a personal service , I will buy from him again love my v8
I have dealt with 51st State Autos on three occasions involving the purchase/sale of American vehicles. I have found Charles to be an absolute delight to do business with and the service he provides is second to none. He has a warm & friendly style and works hard to provide information about options to ensure the best possible price is achieved for his client. During each transaction, Charles has kept me informed of progress and has delivered on all his commitments.
For those new to driving an American import, Charles will provide the opportunity for a test drive with his stock of used vehicles and will make the daunting process of bring a new vehicle into the UK easy and painless. For more seasoned users of American imports, Charles supports you through the process of selecting your new car and gets it to the UK as efficiently and effectively as possible. I would not hesitate to use 51st State Autos again and recommend you do the same as I am sure you will not be disappointed.
I would like to thank Charles at 51st State Autos for outstanding customer service during the purchase of my Dodge Ram. I was kept informed from purchase to delivery and I am really pleased with my new vehicle. I would recommend 51st State Autos for any American auto purchase.
When looking to purchase my dream vehicle 51st State Autos were second to none. Their reliable straight talking approach made the whole experience enjoyable and stress free. 51st State Autos supplied a SVT Ford Raptor F150 american pickup truck, one of the best looking trucks in the UK.
I would recommend 51st State Autos to anyone looking to purchase an american vehicle, a pleasure to deal with.
I first introduced myself to Charles at 51state Autos as I was in the market for the best truck in the world, a Ford F150 Raptor!! I found Charles very knowledgeable and had plenty of previous dealings both with the trucks, purchasing and shipping. I felt in safe hands and that Charles was the man I wished to obtain the vehicle. He made it very easy, has lots of experience and delivered exactly what I wanted and some.
In summary, if you are looking to purchase and American car plus all the after market add ons or require something shipping then Charles can deliver that. What I ended up with is a truck that looks like something out of the Transformer films and still stare at it on my drive over 18 months later.
Thanks Charles for all your help, be speaking soon about supercharging it !!
This was our first experience of using 51st State Autos.
They acquired our new RAM truck to our specification.
We found them a pleasure to do business with, and we will be back in the future.
Our new RAM is great
I’ve had the pleasure of buying two Ford F150’s from Charles and am looking forward to buying the new model for delivery next year. The whole process from choosing the specification of the vehicle to delivery is smooth and painless. Charles can only be described as patient and extremely helpful. He will guide you through the options available for the vehicle and accommodate any special requests, such as a new performance exhaust system.
Nothing seems to be too much trouble.
Once the decision has been made and the vehicle has been shipped it’s natural to want to get it in your hands as quickly as possible. Charles cannot influence the speed of the shipping but will pull out all the stops to speed up the necessary adjustments required to pass the SVA before delivery. The whole service that Charles provides is first class.
Of course the icing on the cake is seeing your vehicle in the flesh for the first time which makes the short wait seem irrelevant.
Dealing with Charles of 51st State Autos is a real pleasure. Every aspect is dealt with very professionally and I was kept well informed through the whole process from ordering the vehicle to having the after market upgrades right the way through to the excellent handover process. Even the cherished number went through very smoothly all handled by 51st State.
I have recently purchased a Ram 2500 and the awesome Ford SVT Raptor, both backed with three year warranties. It is great to know that you can own such wonderful american vehicles in the UK with zero hassle. The level of service from 51st State Autos is better than I have experienced from a lot of franchised dealerships!
I have to say it is By far the Best experience I have had buying cars from anywhere, Charles has looked after me superbly, so much so that my third car off Charles is now on order for 2015
I have purchased two imported American trucks from Charles now and have been extremely happy with
the service he has provided me along with the continuing service as and when I require any equipment
etc. for my vehicle. I will certainly be calling Charles again when I am ready to change my truck and would
highly recommend him.
I was looking to replace my 2006 ram and found Charles very professional,
easy to deal with and offered the best deal on my new truck . I recommended 51st state to a friend of mine who has also just taken delivery of a new ram . He will certainly be supplying my next truck too !
Many thanks again
From the the very first email to 51st state autos i knew my car buying experience was going to be memorable.Dealing with Charles was a real pleasure ,he fully explained how the procedure worked when importing/purchasing a new Dodge Ram.
Once Charles had run through the very many options and specifications on offer we got our order in.Charles kept me fully updated on the progress and amazingly the vehicle arrived in the UK within a few days and within a couple of weeks i was driving down to Essex to collect my new Ram with all aspects covered ie DVLA/IVA testing,Road tax,Tracker fitted dvla registration etc…a complete service that went totally hassle free.Upon collection i was guided through the vehicles many features before i started my 250 miles journey back North .
Not only was the superb service received from start to finish from 51st state completely hassle free the vehicle exceeded all my expectations,it really is an all round superb vehicle and i highly recommend 51st State autos if you are considering the purchase of a Ram or indeed any american car,if you have the same experience i enjoyed you too will be over the moon.
